Commerce Charter Township-based Nuspire, a managed security services provider, has hired Lewie Dunsworth as CEO. Saylor Frase, the company’s previous CEO, now serves as chairman of the board.
“After a long, extensive nation-wide search, we are incredibly fortunate to bring on board someone as well suited and talented as Lewie Dunsworth,” says Brian St. Jean, board member for Nuspire and partner at Abry Partners. “Lewie’s 20 years of experience in cybersecurity as both a practitioner, including as a Fortune 1000 CISO, and as a leader of a managed security services provider, will provide Nuspire with exceptional depth and guidance as it continues to provide unmatched services and technology to its customers.”
Dunsworth will work with Nuspire’s leadership team to make strategic decisions, lead overall business operations, and spearhead the company’s growth strategy into new markets while evolving its service portfolio.
“I am honored and excited to take on the role of CEO for a company who has such a high service delivery track record, incredible focus on client satisfaction, and a team of dedicated and talented people,” says Dunsworth. “Nuspire is well positioned for sustained success and has a wonderful opportunity to continue its growth and portfolio of services into our target markets.”
Dunsworth was previously chief information security officer and executive vice president of global security services at Herjavec Group, chief information security officer of H&R Block, and senior vice president of advisory services and managed services at Optiv. He completed his bachelor’s degree at DeVry University and a Master of Business Administration at the University of Missouri in Kansas City.
Frase will continue to provide guidance, expertise, and business relationships as he transitions into his new role.
“I am so proud of the growth and success the company has achieved over the past 20 years and the hard work and dedication that our employees give every day to get us to where we are today,” he says. “As Nuspire enters this new chapter, I’m excited to work closely with our new CEO as chairman of the board and to continue serving our customers with unparalleled managed security services.”
